polygon map search script

P: n/a
I need to find some kind of polygon map search JavaScript that allows
me to draw a polygon on a map an passed it on so i can define a search
from the coordinates

Have anyone see any sites using this functionality or something
similar?

WTF is a "polygon map search JavaScript"?
that allows me to draw a polygon on a map an passed it on

How are those "lines" drawn? The user clicking the map and then the
lines drawn by JS? If so, simply track the user clicks and save the
coordinates. Drawing the lines is a totally different question.

Depends on what you are talking about.

Sorry I wasn't clear. The user needs to be able to draw some lines
and create a polygon. For example I have a street map and the streets
that are inside the polygon will be included in the search.

For cross-browser graphics, this is a good library:-

That isn't well suited for Javascript. Flash or a Java applet would be
better suited.
